Everyone wants their photograph with the train - adults and children alike. This is the Odakyu line train at Hakone-Yumoto, which meanders slowly and comfortably back to Shinjuku station in Tokyo. Japanese gauge (1067 mm) trains do not exceed 90 kph, except for some expresses which are limited to 130 kph. The driver sits in the cockpit above the carriage.
